Chris Elston Is Standing Against the Mutilation of Young Transkids
"Give me some examples of what's on the billboards that you are carrying to these events. Sure. My main message is children can not consent to puberty blockers. These are drugs that stop their bodies from going into puberty. With the logic that if you're 14 year old young girl, if you're a 15 year old young boy raging hormones, that time of life we've all been through, consent just simply does not apply to somebody who hasn't reached the majority age. And as a result, the idea that a child can knowingly say yes, I understand the consequences of having my breast cut off or being castrated as a boy is impossible. Yes, I never mind the 14 and 15 year olds. They're giving these to 9 and ten year olds. Tanner stage two is the beginning phase of puberty. And that's when the endocrine society and the American academy of pediatrics recommends this. So these children literally believe that a big fat man travels at lightning speed across the sky like Matt Walsh said comes down there to me and these presents. What is a woman? So he's the analogy he made that in front of a Doctor Who performs these transgender operations, which are nothing. They are mutilation, they're nothing to do with transitioning. This is being done to children who are knowingly deciding at the same time that they believe in Santa Claus. Yes, blocking puberty at 9 or ten years old, cutting off the breasts of girls as young as 12 years old has happened. It happened at a Kaiser permanente in Oakland, California. We have kellan Lockhart on video admitting to it. We'll talk about what's going on in California. So tell your story, I'm getting really angry right now. I couldn't do what you do. Within 60 seconds, I'd be arrested for assault with these people who are promoting the mutilation of children. So again, I commend you for what you do, Chris.

"Small business checking at Wells Fargo dot com. Unionized nurses and other healthcare workers in California and Oregon voted to authorize a strike. Their union is negotiating with Kaiser permanente, which runs a number of hospitals and clinics there. The nurse is and others are not striking now, just authorizing a strike, though it raises the prospect of a mid pandemic walkout. The alliance of healthcare unions is objecting to a proposed two tiered wage system. Kaiser is proposing lower wages for workers hired in the future than for people on the job now. Labor economist Jane Carter, who was part of the union negotiating team objects to that proposal and also objects to the wages for current workers. We've been in bargaining for months now and Kaiser has taken a position. They're claiming that the sky is falling or will be falling in the future. And they've not proven that whatsoever. In fact, they're a very profitable company, but they're asking for significant cuts from our membership from our frontline heroes that worked dayne and day out during the pandemic who fought to keep people alive and worried about taking the virus home to their own families, suffering through PTSD and Kaiser's proposal is pretty harsh. We called Kaiser and they said quote, our initial economic proposal includes wage increases for all current employees and no changes to the current retirement plan, also guarantees no wage cuts for current employees. What's wrong with that? That's incorrect. So on average over the last few years, we've had wage increases between two to 3% across the board. Kaiser's current proposal is a 1% increase across the board for current employees. And only a 1% matching on what we call the defined contribution bonus. It sounds like then when they say wage increases for all current employees, that's correct, but you're saying it's a very small increase in less than you're accustomed to, is that right? It's a small increase, but the problem the detrimental aspect of Kaiser is proposal is starting in 2023, so not too far around the corner. New hires will start out at rates between 26 to 39% less than current employees. That's what a two tiered proposal is. Yes. The current people get their current salaries are a little better, but new people are paid less. What's wrong with that? Two chair systems pretty draconian in and of itself. Because it starts off paying workers so substantially less than current employees. It creates division. So if you have an employee who is one or two years in and the two tiers kicks in, that new employee two years later is making 26 to 39% less than that other employee. And at one point, that workforce will be divided between the first here in the second tier. So what it creates then is basically a second class set of workers. Let me give you an opportunity to respond to another part of Kaiser's statement here. They say, and this is just a quote at the heart of our dispute is the fact that healthcare is increasingly unaffordable and escalating wages are half the cost of healthcare. Essentially they're saying that your union is responsible for the fact that healthcare costs are going up and up or at least partly responsible. Do you accept that? I don't. In fact, you inaccurate CP and the alliance unions would welcome working with Kaiser to cut cost. In fact, we have, we proposed multiple ideas of the table and tried to discuss them in Kaiser as not even even entertained any of the ideas that we put forward. Second corporate executives are refusing to come off this idea of a two tier proposal. And they're slash and burn proposal ultimately will harm patients. Do you feel that you have leverage? Because so many employers are struggling to find workers anyway, and here you are in this particularly difficult field where you just said a lot of people are contemplating leaving. Let's be very clear. We're facing a nationwide nurse shortage. In fact, moody's in 2018 issued a dire report saying that this would be the case that healthcare organizations would have to pull out all the stops to attract and retain experienced our ends by offering higher salaries and other incentives. And that was 2018. So fast forward three years. And just recently, moody's issued in more dire warnings saying that the delta variant and healthcare provider burnout is actually intensifying and making those staffing challenges even worse. And the health systems would need to offer more lucrative incentives and pay to pay for skilled nursing staff than even previously predicted. I think that Kaiser is being short sighted by offering a proposal that divides our future workforce and pays them 26% less than their current colleagues make now. I guess I should mention that the national bureau of economic research has studied past nurses strikes and finds that they raise in hospital mortality as it makes intuitive sense that they would. That would be a hard decision to go on strike, wouldn't it? I don't think that this is an easy decision for anybody. Look, you ACP, the leaders and the membership do not want to be in this position. At all, whatsoever. It is a pandemic. And our members have an absolute commitment to their patients, but that's exactly why they took this strike vote. This authorization vote is because Kaiser's position is putting our patient safety in the care of our patients at risk. Jane Carter, labor economist. Thanks so much. Thanks Steve. I appreciate it..
Some Kaiser Permanente Employees Quit Over Vaccine Mandate
"Talked to several people. Also who are work work well who worked Past tense for the biggest hospital chain. That rhymes with the people that worked with kaiser. That have just laughed because kaiser is saying they're not going to To acquiesce they're not even going to offer. They're gonna tighten up even religious exemptions So it's it's appalling that all of these people have to leave their jobs after serving us so well but these police officer said that they will walk out if they have to get the vaccine and they're willing to do other things they're willing to mask up. They're willing to take tests but they do not want to have the vaccine common. They should be no need to give a reason. Because my buddy choice. But i'm just curious in talking to them. Is that common thread as to why they don't want to because it's experimental or is in health reasons religious. What are they saying. I you know. So based on the people that i've talked to so far. It's all the reasons that you and i have talked about on the radio for months. Now it's the fact that it just hasn't been around long enough number one number two they don't want the government going down the slippery slope and this is probably the biggest of telling us what we can do. You know. I had a friend who is a pretty close friend who has got an active case of lupus and she has not gotten the vaccine yet but she also was afraid to get the vaccine. Because she's in a flare of lupus. She thinks it's going to make her sicker. She tried to get an appointment. Ucla medical center. They would not see her to treat her lupus until she got a covert vaccine and she told them that she was afraid and that she didn't wanna do it until she was. You know well on the mend from the lupus and they would not see her just wrong. So what's the next step. Are we going to go after smoking. Are we going to go after people. I mean what what what is next. Are we not. I mean the of law enforcement and hospitals are serve people who need help not to worry about vaccine

"For inherent bias. Both in the sort of source data in an initial reputation and then even in our action and something that that we're looking at the end the other area is this digital divide issue and so we're actually delving very very deep into this issue and really looking at this issue of uneven unequal access and the ability to use technology for care delivery and you know some of the areas that we're looking at are areas that i think traditionally people have looked at things like access to broadband access to devices. We know that in terms of devices for example like access to a laptop for for somebody making under thirty thousand dollars year that accesses somewhere around fifty percent and people who make over one hundred thousand dollars a year. it's about ninety five percent so we know that and also looking at the issue of digital literacy were also really looking at some of that of less traditional viewpoints of digital equity like really pushing against these generalizations that we make about the barriers that people have to use really looking at how we do hybrid solution so there really is an element of patient choice. So we don't force the digital solution on people or we let people toggle choose between the two really understanding the issue of cultural competency and underlying bias and then ultimately in the recommendations looking at things like how can kaiser permanente use its influence around to influence policy around broadband access booking at even our own facilities. We're looking now about how we might use their own facilities to increase broadband access and five g. access looking at technical assistance models looking at models around consumer engagement and helping people learn how use technology so really being expansive and how we're addressing that issue with this umbrella of equity and inclusion so. We're we're very excited about this work. And we think it's critically important not only for owned business but the overall access to technology and society had jody. I'm glad you spent some time diving into the digital divide because a lot of people just assume yeah you know with the pandemic we scaled digital and now accesses easy. But truly you know there's gaps and figuring out how to solve those gaps is critical to success. So appreciate you diving into that you know and even the thought like can we make some of these devices prescribable. Is there a pathway. Where cms could say yeah. You know what we're going to start seeing these exactly and that's where some of the policy influence could really come into play. And that's that's the beauty of working. For kaiser. Permanente is just this incredible assets and influence and voice that we have and then looking at how we use that during the pandemic. We had waivers right. There were broad waivers from medicare that allowed us to do all kinds of different things that we normally couldn't and so we are advocating to and working really hard on the making some of the waivers permanent for example we had over. I want to say one thousand nine hundred patients. At one time that were we were essentially monitoring them from home and they would have normally been in the hospital right so medical mostly medical patients and some are post surgical patients because of the shelter in place and the shutdown. We still needed to be able to take care of our patients and so we deployed technology monitoring equipment put physicians and nurses both with the ability to visit people at home as well as being a monitor in a sort of a a centralized command center monitoring all patients in these beds so it was pretty amazing and it. Just you know out of. I think crisis you're able to innovate but also those waivers allowed us to do things that we otherwise couldn't have done so appreciate that you mentioning that right now. I think the hospital associations medical groups all of us are working really hard to be able to have more flexibility. Because really this is a time where. I think that there's a big movement to move care at home where people can have privacy. Dignity support a family as long as we're able to monitor for clinical conditions and handle escalations. Yeah and this care. Delivery at home is really a hot topic. I would love to kind of hear the perspective that you all are taking on that and maybe what. Your vision is for this area. I think janet. Maybe i can start. I think we have a our vision. I i do want to say that. Kaiser permanente has a very significant program of care in the home today and always has now. The question is can we start looking at different types of populations one of which is hospital at home. You may have seen that. Kaiser permanent day recently invested in medically home..

We happen to be doing this. Podcast you know at the knock on wood. Hopefully the tail end of a very trying fifteen months for the world through the pandemic and there were a lot of things that i believe that because of our foundation as integrated care and coverage organization it really enabled us to bring the best of who we are to assist our counties and cities and the public health institutions to really both do that identification to do the treatment and to now joyfully being this vaccination stage but i think the these teams around equity and inclusion digital divide you know acceleration of technology all kind of fast forwarded because of the pandemic required all healthcare organizations to really take a look at what we could do differently to be able to virtual health and to be able to function in a pandemic and so i thought we could talk a little bit about jodi and i could talk about the three themes today with you and by jodi to kind of kick us off. You know it's Yeah one of the things. Pandemic thing cheer point highlighted was something that i think that we certainly knew and understood and had been working on for many years. A kaiser permanente around health disparities and the need to strive for health equity but the pandemic highlighted that in just an extraordinary once in a lifetime.

So i am so excited to be here with jodi and janet's it's wanna welcome both of you to the podcast. Thank you absolutely now. The work that you all are doing at kaiser has really. I mean to spend so inspiring and set the tone really for healthcare overall for the country. I'm excited to dig in before we dive into some of the specifics. Though i'd love to learn more about what inspires your work in healthcare. Yeah so. I'm so glad you asked that question because it's important that you know we all get to work and yields in careers in health care that really inspires a deeper passion for ourselves. And for me. I am chinese american and grow up in a immigrant family in the bay area of san francisco. And you know. When i was growing up we had hardship and healthcare was one of those burdens around healthcare costs in our family and so i sort of always in the back of my mind i thought about you know how their economic barriers to access to health care and i had decided that i was going to go to college and pursue becoming an attorney to seek legal justice. Right is a former social justice and then during that time it was the clinton administration released began conversations the first or second round of conversations around healthcare reform and i was just so inspired by the dialogue around. Healthcare is a right that it shouldn't be based on your employment status samat dislike basic education. People should have basic rights to access to healthcare. And i threw myself into that in terms of my career. And i'm feel so fortunate that i'm able to work in a field that can address what i consider to be a fundamental right for people in this country and i will say to that. I'm inspired not just work in healthcare. But i'm specifically inspired to work a kaiser permanente because we're an organization that has a seventy five year mission. is grounded not just in care for our members and our patients but for our communities and i think that's important link on understanding how we bring about equity and opportunity for people in their lives through healthcare data. That's wonderful janet. Thank you so much for sharing that and the experience you had you know certainly formative and i think it's fantastic that you bring that forth in how you guys are doing your work on inclusion at kaiser and thank you for sharing that. Jody how. 'bout you tell us about you. What inspires your work in healthcare. So you know. It's so interesting.

Climate Neutral's Austin Whitman Discusses Industry Efforts to Go Green
"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast I'm the host David Entra Cosso. During this podcast discussed with Austin Whitman, CEO of climate neutral industry efforts to go green or achieve carb climate neutral rather status Mr. Whitman. Welcome to the program. Thanks David it's crispy here. I very much welcome Mr Whitman's BIOS across posted on the podcast website on background collectively termed sub nationals, numerous academic institution states, cities, and local governments, companies NGOs, and other enemies across the country have pledged to become climate neutral. Journey this means that our greenhouse gas emissions our carbon footprint are completely offset by consuming or funding renewable energy resources and or funding reforestation or other carbon sequestration efforts. Though the healthcare benefits of reducing carbon emissions are crystal clear as I'm not previously be of this podcast healthcare providers in federal industry regulators are climate nihilists. They have been some ignored this issue despite the fact after the food industry healthcare is the largest amount of carbon dioxide equivalent. It over six, hundred, fifty, million metric tons annually or approximately ten percent of the US greenhouse gas emissions. As I've noted previously per research published in plus one four years ago, Mount Sinai research concluded. Health harm caused by the healthcare industries carbon emissions causes upwards of ninety, eight, thousand deaths per year just in the US. In addition, the US healthcare industry substantially lags behind other prominent US industries in publicly reporting their carbon emissions. Two weeks ago however Kaiser Permanente, the US's largest integrated nonprofit healthcare provider, and now it had achieved carbon neutral status. Meeting the organization had a raised as eight hundred, thousand tonne carbon footprint. Or Eight, hundred, thousand tons emitted annually. As. Kaiser noted in his nine fourteen press release quote unquote as physicians climate changes absolutely in our lane. Kaiser's the first healthcare system in the US to achieve status and listeners may recall interviewed Kaiser's Kathy Gerwig. Regarding her own. Climate. Neutral efforts in. May of Twenty nineteen. With me again to discuss corporate efforts to go green is climate neutral CEO Austin Whitman. So. Awesome of that as background, let me begin by asking you if you could provide a brief overview of your organization. Yeah well. Great, David I love that background because what you've done is I think shown a spotlight on something that needs to change and we hope it will change in the sense that climate is an overarching challenge that for anyone not to see it as their challenge. Is really mistake and one of the encouraging signs that I've seen in the last few years is that more and more people are taking note of the challenge and really picking it up as something that they've got to think about in their in their day to day climate. Neutral. we started a year and a half ago really with the basic sort of with basic problem in line to which is that consumer pick up any consumer on the street and them what they've been told to do To help, reverse or address climate change and people will probably tell you. Well, I know that I should stop eating meat and I know that I drive an electric car and I know that I should fly less. And maybe some other things too and one of the interesting things is if you if you think about those three, are you eating meat is pretty obvious when you pick up before you can say You know I'm eating a steak where I'm eating a banana driving cars pretty obvious and are you flying is pretty obvious as well, and and unfortunately those those three things only address a small chunk of the total carbon that each of us is responsible for, and that's because all the things the objects that we rely on day to day are the product of a fossil fuel intensive production chain or value chain, which we call kind of a carbon trail that stretches around the world. and. So the best the best idea we could come up with to deal with this is to create a label just like a USDA organic label that would indicate to consumer the climate impacts of something that they buy. So we can sort of turn the money that people spend on stuff. When it's not obvious like a, you know a steak versus a banana when it's not obvious what the climate impacts of something that they buy are we can. We can put a label on it that says, you know did the company that made that thing measure it's carbon emissions. Carbon that they were responsible for frowned producing that thing and bringing it to the customer, and then did they take steps to offset that carbon offset also known as remove or purchase a carbon? And we can get into those technical details at some point is you want And then are they working on plans to reduce their carbon emissions? So this is sort of the the basic designation that we came up with and the label launched officially in June of last year, we recruited about one hundred forty companies to get certified. which was going to happen from January to April of this year with the pandemic I feared the worst but actually turned out to be the best we ended up getting one hundred and fifty companies certified by the end of it so. One of the things we learned from that was yes, there's a pandemic if anything it has sort of reinforced the idea that there's a shared vulnerability across all of us that we really need to. You know we really need to to get together and figure out in the cases cove. It's obvious. It's public health flying in the case of climate. It's obvious. It's environmental one so. We certified one hundred fifty brands were now in the midst of recruiting more companies to get certified for. Twenty Twenty I. Guess The final detail I would add would be were restructured a nonprofit and Mission is simply to decrease global carbon emissions and to engage consumers brands to make that happen.

"Quarantine starting October 15th David Oliver, social Media editor for the Travel section at Yusa today will tell us how will need to pack I would be. This announcement is something that has been postponed several times. So play Governor Wantto. You put this in place August 1st, But, you know, I keep postponing it as cold cases kept speaking about us Man Land and also in Hawaii when they're going to start September 1st, and then they had to cancel that. So it's been pushed back. So many get the time. Read this sort of someone you know, bowing to pressure but somewhat needing two people traveling to Hawaii again, and, you know cases have actually write down from A higher average from last week. So in theory, this could be the time to try it. But I will tell you gonna work out. It's interesting. You say time will tell as if we really know what the future is going to hold. But from what it seems like you're telling me it will be subject to what is happening not only in Hawaii but in the United States as Faras just infections correct. So that means because, in theory as people start to travel again and be thinking it happened, like the Lasses come and whatnot. So if the matter's on both the US mainland and in a light, yeah, travelers will have to take Cove in 19 tests within 72 hours before their flight arrives. So it matters where their origination point is arrives in the island, CVS and healthcare provider Kaiser Permanente have Agreed to conduct a test is part of this agreement with the state. But it highlights the obvious that people will be coming into contact with a lot of other people in life and in the airport in those preceding hours after the test, would they not Yes, that's true. And airline were supposed to be helping inform travelers of this requirement and then Hawaii Actually, earlier this summer, they're requiring travelers to fill out an online They've traveled application in order to keep both residents and visitors healthy during the pandemic. So you know that's digitizing a process that was once the paper but you know they're trying, Tio. I guess, you know, just make sure that people are aware of what's going on. And they keep talking where people have been all in theory to obviously prevented spiking cases. But as the theme of this pandemic like it could take, like one person, Tio bottom line or to not answer truthfully or what, not that could end up becoming a super spreader. You used the word pressure before and there seems to be this push. Pull. Between Public pressure in public policy. Hawaii has fared relatively well, You mention that to my mind from what I see, there has only been maybe 103 deaths so far attributed to covert 19 as of this conversation, but from what you've read what you've seen whatyou conglomeration. Has there been pushback from Hawaiian residents not connected to tourism over this are they Mohr against possibly introducing more people into the population right about now? I'm not 100% sure exactly what everybody thinking there, But I would say that. I mean, if you think about it, general, like you know, the more people you introduced to a population, There is definitely gonna be concern among residents among fellow travelers about exactly what's happening. I would say that. I think that if I anywhere, noticed his eyes, Why it Well, I guess I have a certain part of the population is concerned about the type of thing and obviously we're seeing a lot of different opinion. You're on the country in regard to mask wearing and things like that. Since Hawaii has done relatively better than other parts in the United States, I would imagine that they've not had to. Endure the type of sheltering in place or locked down restrictions of businesses like say, here in California, to your knowledge has Hawaii had to really implement any of those in state restrictions that other places have? Not to my knowledge. Unfortunately, no, But I mean, I do believe that you know, around the country General. There has been a prescription pretty much everywhere so it may not be exactly the same, but I mean In terms of quarantining him or not Hawaii specifically, just given the way that the ultimate for visitors, I mean, why have to be careful with both currently, even on the island, like they're just started to put together a resort bubble proposal, And then it just got passed for the county of Glide where it just want to travel in between islands. You know, they're enquiring sort of resorts that are following Ministering protocols and they're fine, but they're not taking it seriously are there are restrictions? I think that like I well, and there are restrictions. Okay, so there is not necessarily complete freedom of movement for traveler, If you are to fly into Waikiki does not mean that you can go to the other neighboring islands and just have free run and free exploration. Is that correct? No, At least not right now. No, In theory, like you can't just like once you're there. You have a specific resort is there you know if they're part of this program, butters, or have me sit in the guidelines in order to become a partner in your bubble program that was floated our labor summer has this notification been met with Overall cheer glee. Are people happy about this or that just very cautious in nature right about now, just the general reaction. I think in general, I think it's something that we all sort of thought coming eventually, and then we were anticipating kind of each month. It's gonna happen or not. But then, you know cases started baking oven timer general like Oh, no, But then I think you just beamed around the country. People are really fed up with the quarantine. And, er, you know nothing about you around as much..
Hawaii to allow travelers to skip quarantine with virus test
"Forced to quarantine for 14 days in their hotels or rentals after arriving on the island, which has meant many people just haven't taken trips, But those rules were about to change. Starting October. 15th, Hawaii's governor says travelers arriving from out of state will be allowed to bypass the 14 day quarantine requirement if they test negative for covert 19 within 72 hours before their flight arrives in the islands, CVS and Kaiser Permanente are conducting the tests is part of an agreement with Hawaii. That testing plan has been delayed several times. There appears to be some movement on another Corona virus Relief Bill.

Online therapy is thriving now, but can it remain viable?
"If you've ever been in the market for a new therapist, you know the drill I ask your doctor or a trusted friend for some recommendations next search online to verify they take your health insurance. Then when you finally find someone hope that there is don't get wide with horror once you start talking about your childhood otherwise he gets weird and you have to start the process all over again. But like most things. These days a combination of technology and covid nineteen have disrupted mental healthcare. Only this time that disruption may have actually made things better now that in-person counseling is largely lockdown online therapy. APPS. With their simplified pipelines and virtual options are looking more appealing than ever in May popular option talk space told The Washington Post that it's volume was up sixty five percent since the beginning of the pandemic rival better help told Mashal the business has doubled during the shutdown and that more than ten thousand people per day sign up for it service. Deciding which services right for you depends on what you're looking for better help offers unlimited therapy sessions while talk spaces offerings while not unlimited include psychiatric help in addition to traditional talk therapy, the online therapy landscape has changed significantly from the beginning of the year in March. The federal government issued waivers allowing insurance programs like Medicare and Medicaid to cover telehealth services for a variety of treatments including for mental health care and many private insurers lined up to allow coverage to the combination of lower cost online therapy sessions, and. Expanded Insurance Coverage helped more people afford the help they needed during an anxious time but success is not without its obstacles. The companies that create these APPS aren't just altruistic healthcare providers. Their tech companies to that means they need to be able to scale their software for growth and they need to do it fast for that they need funding talk spaces raised one, hundred, ten, million dollars to fuel its growth better help was acquired by Telemedicine Tele Doc in twenty fifteen even so each company is facing some growing pains. First, there's the issue of the industry's uncertain future. The relaxed regulations in Medicare waivers that allowed this growth may not be long-term wants the pandemic has passed will the regulations remain in place maybe Maybe, not the other issue is finding enough therapists to keep up with demand. Each platform is actively recruiting mental health professionals through its website and employment advertising. But the hiring bar is high therapists must be licensed in their state and have at least three years of experience. They're paid as independent contractors by the platform verge reports and the competition is tough. There are dozens of online therapy. APPS now, competitor Ginger has raised one hundred, twenty million in its latest round of funding secured in August CIGNA ventures. In Kaiser, permanente ventures both participated giving the startup, some important insurance and healthcare provider muscle in the Mex- online therapy does make mental health care more affordable and accessible, but questions remain about how the highly regulated world of Healthcare Meshes with the grow grow world of technology companies. One thing is certain demand for mental health care is only growing between the pandemic, the recession social unrest in a slew of natural disasters. Now, there's plenty of anxiety around.
Dr. Howard Fullman: COVID, Probiotics, and the Impact of Coronavirus on the Future of Medicine
"We're honored to have. Dr Howard J foam and join us to catch up on medicine, practice and politics prevention, and of course a bit about our fight against. COVID nineteen so may we suggest that you pull yourself a double. Sit back and join us on medicine. We're still practicing I'm bill, Curtis. I are host. The quadruple board certified doctor of Internal Medicine Pulmonary Disease Critical Care and neuro critical care. My very good friend Dr Steven Taback, however you, Steve Hey bill good to see you. We haven't had dinner together for a while I. Don't remember what it was like. They actually have dinner and enjoy an evening. So you know we have one of our favorite experts rejoining. Rejoining us today Dr, Howard J. Felman he is board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology will learn more about that. In a minute Howard, served a multi decade tenure at Kaiser Permanente Day as partner board member. President of the Executive Committee Chief of staff and chair of the Quality Committee. He supervised forty three hundred staff over five hundred doctors. Howard is now senior operating advisor. Advisor at the Atlantic. Street capital for their medically focused investments Dr Howard J foam. Welcome back I nice to be here. Stephen nicest to us well Hey Howard. Good to see you so last time we met in our studio in Malibu was only back in February and it seems like a whole lifetime ago in quite a year, and we're only halfway through it and we know. Know there's a lot more to come Howard. I hope you'll forgive me, but I took my nasty pill this morning, so I want to dive into a difficult issue, but as the time of this recording according to Johns Hopkins, Japan although infected early has less than one cova death per hundred thousand population, while the US has thirty nine Cova deaths per one hundred thousand population. Japan more elderly per capita than any other country. They kept their borders open during the Wu Han locked down there, stay home requests by Japanese. Government have been voluntary, as was any of the closing of their non essential businesses. And now for a country with one city that houses more than thirty seven million people. They have less than a thousand deaths countrywide, but the hell is going on I. Don't know that anyone knows exactly all of the differences, but I'll give you. Some and I think that may be different. One is there's probably a genetic component to this disease that we don't quite understand. People were speculating. Why was so much more Italy because Italian get together a lot more than others people wonder with net net might have been some genetic predisposition. She decided kind storms for example, another article morbidity in patient population, so age is one thing you're right. Japanese population is actually older than the US. By other commodities like obesity, which is turning out to be a significant risk factor here is unfortunately. It's still a lot more obesity united. States than there is Japan so just because we've sorted out that the age factor may not explain it, but we have some more chronic illness in the United States spend maybe contributing to it as well and then you know the way we've handled. Handled the public health aspect of this and again I also wanted to be very careful about criticism of even the public health system because I'm sure there's a lot of things we look back and could have done differently, but we also have a lot of public health officers. Some extremely courageous ones and I'll say that I think unfortunately a some of our public does not really believe. Believe in this pandemic, the seriousness that they should, and that may be affecting the outcomes as well. There are certain communities as you know. Where substantial numbers of people were having just seemingly significant disregard, and so that might have been large numbers coming in at a just a bowl of people coming in all the ones that saturated the healthcare system made it hard to take care of. Of someone people possibly people coming in later than they should have because perhaps denial about the significance of the Selma's when it is on severe, and it's not be causing a doctor that I. don't WanNa Fault. The nurses and the doctors and rest of just I've seen what they're doing. My follow it very carefully, and I'm very proud of them, but I think because of the. The differences in population and our public health system is not working well is not resigned the way it should be, and there's not functioning in the way that it has been planned to function the
Is Telemedicine the Future of Medicine?
"I have to be perfectly honest. When I was first talking with Lucy and she said we really should do something on telemedicine and the future of medicine I just thought well. We look at work and care issues. We look at family as shoes gender equality equity across racing classes well. What does telemedicine have to deal with any of this? So let me turn it over to you Amanda and make the case. Why is this so critical for equity and work in? In Care Systems, this is a subject that is berry near, and dear to my heart. Both someone is committed to racial justice, and in particular with in the area of medicine and shrinking health disparities. It's my body of work, so what I'm doing is trying to redesign prenatal care for as a permanent in northern California where we deliver forty five thousand babies a year, so it's exciting we try to have. What are they? Cow Path moments in private and I'd like to think of this as one of them. Because we have to do more virtual care, prenatal care particular in women's health in general is a time when people come into the office a lot, so we have to ask ourselves what can be done remotely? What can't be done? And what are the factors that are impacting women's ability to have those appointments do they have broadband high speed Internet at their house. Do they have smartphones? do they have any place private to talk about? Their issues were very concerned about family violence, child abuse Yeah, in this era, also so there could be the risk associated with tele-medicine. Flip side there can be huge benefits. People don't have to take time off of work. They don't have to come in and commute and park. They don't have to find child care for their children. Even though China work and care of your children, your doctor of the same kind of tough, but we don't know which way this is point because we have to be really conscious every step of the way we're designing our care delivery in the telehealth space. What is the impact to be on a marginalized patients and the race and ethnic divide you staying with you Amanda? What do we know I? Mean it's it's. It's it's still a fairly new kind of thing right. So what do we know about how it impacts equity or patient, care or working family systems? Do we know much about it, or is it still so new? We don't know a whole lot yet. What we don't know a whole lot yet and in particular we don't know much about the race ethnicity side inside of Kaiser Permanente because we're closed system what we will know a lot because we do have that demographic data about our patients, and then in the maternal house based. We have no babies being born yet because this is all very new. So we don't know about our longer term. Outcomes with the key is as we're doing this design because Kobe is not going away tomorrow, we're going to really have to think about these systems. We have to keep that consciousness around. What is this point? Do in terms of Eray. So, let me turn to you, Lucy. This is something that we've had really some very interesting discussions about, and you've also had some incredibly intense experiences around telehealth and telemedicine during the pandemic, and not just around physical health, but also mental health. Can you talk a little bit more about that? Yes, as you know and many of your listeners now this is a mental health crisis as As, much as it is a physical health, prices Americans are suffering collectively with grief and loss and trauma to varying degrees, and so because our mental health effects, not only how he'll day today, but it directly affects medical outcomes. There's no shortage of data the show that are motion health, and our behavioral health, and of course, layered on top of that a social determinants of health. Effects are medical albums in very real ways. It's essential that primary care. Doctors and doctors in general understand that intersection. And for many people in the pandemic for my musicians. telehealth lifeline. Has as Dr, Williams said, it's not a panacea, not everyone has access to a smartphone or Internet access, but for people who need support physically and mentally is offered a new avenue. I think it's going to be here to stay. I don't think it's ever going to replace individual. One on one faced base care, and actually as Dr. Williams and I know the foundation of my work rotations the relationship, the relationship between patient is crucial, and so that is not going be replaced by virtual care hover. augments existing care for example I have a patient who lost her husband to Kobe during the pandemic. have been able to have the end of conversation. I did with that family from their home. Pre pandemic, because now we have these virtual platforms address. How are loosening regulations allowed visits to be paid for similar to what they would be in person, and then this patient of mine who is going through natural wraith and trauma, losing her husband on top of the pandemic, if able to for the first one axles agreed counselor remotely, and that is something that is not only important for her to. Feeling, but it's it's going to directly affect your medical outcomes, and that is what gives me hope for our future, we. What was that conversation like? You know a pre covert? How would that have gone? And how did that change? Or how was that? I was at different having to having to have such a such an intimate conversation over a kind of a technology platform. Well, it is interesting I mean first of all the patient who is at the end of his life could not have made it physically into my office. But I was able to have an hour long conversation with him on a virtual platform, and his family surrounded by his bedside and talk about very important decision making that pre pandemic. Wouldn't have been covered by insurance now. I probably would have had that conversation anyway, but you know doctors to get paid for their services and mental health providers need to get paid for their service and free. Corona virus insurance wouldn't reimburse for care wasn't face to face and for new incremental health issues. You had to have little morbidity so in other words. If you had an addiction I, Can Apple Addiction? Your therapists would only get paid if you also had diabetes. Those things need to change this change here on out. So I want to get to you in a minute, but Amanda if I can go back to you. Let's stay with that systems question. We've had this technology. You know we've had kind of the ability to connect virtually for some time, so has it really been an insurance issue that this hasn't really taken off before now well I will take a step back and say that I. Do work inside of Kaiser Permanent Day and so our. Models are different than in most of the fee for service. World but. Yes, part of the story is reimbursement, and then it's also familiarity and comfort both on a addition signed, and also on the issue as McBride knives off the about with existing patients people who you know, people, you have a relationship. The transition to virtual visits has been very smooth but for new patients. It's a little harder to make that connection nipping. That's why video is critically important because you'd get to see people's faces, you get to see their is. is their expressions actually highly suspected clamps? Yes, beer location of end of pregnancy on a video visit because I saw other, the pieces face was very swollen Oh. Wow, and it made me wonder you know. What is your blood pressure? What is going on about this fluid retention and so I brought her into the hospital for assessment when I was just doing a video visit at home. Wow, no Medicare has recently just said that they will start now, reimbursing or video. And so that's a big pair for us and for much of the country, and so I think that will helped shift the perspective, and then people are using it for their work. So as folks are more comfortable using distance work in general, they can then apply that with their health is now

loves chase fire and prosecute chase I have a dog named chase de fund the paw patrol roll pop control control control control control control we should point out that there actually doesn't appear to be any genuine effort to counsel Paul patrol so but the reason the reason it's not crazy that people bought it is that was the same day that live PD and cops were announced they're going off there anyway and the yanks gone with the wind the most famous movie of all time the most successful movie of all time got your coverage may also not crazy that paw patrol would've been one I saw on known activists saying why paw patrol was problematic but any portrayal of the police in a positive way leads to Bob Bob Bob alliance decision racism so wasn't a completely fake story thank god I say now paw patrol is canceled well it wasn't I don't think Minnesota's your kids age out of something now they have no interest in it and so we've got so many pop patrols blankets pillows lamp shades stuff please what's a stuffy stuffed animals often amounts become studies for summer's mass I grew up with stuffed animal with some it is very cumbersome it assumes a Jennifer they have no interest whatsoever get all the stuff I guess you donated to goodwill and let other small exactly what you do that's a great idea kids without them much cash on hand might get a little paw patrol gear make him

"Welcome back to the podcast today. Have the privilege of. Even these Andino, she is an Afro Latino Health Equity innovator born and raised in the Bronx and the founder and CEO of radical health at least enjoyed a fledgling career in health tech pioneering, some of its first digital health solutions, including bringing the first mobile APP prescribing platform to the market and working with global clients, such as the N., H. S. in London and Kaiser Permanente while she routinely trained oncologist on new drugs. She found herself unprepared when her mother was diagnosed with cancer this I heard directly and intimately confront the systemic healthcare despair she knew existed in founding radical health. The first Latina owned and operated benefit Corp in New York City. She has sought to combine her expertise in healthcare and her passion as a community organizer, coming from an historically marginalized community herself. It was important for valise to initially build radical health by bringing together her neighbors around her kitchen table and hearing firsthand from voices, including undocumented women of color, elderly young people and the Lgbtq community who are. Figuratively, and literally never given a seat at the table to have a say in their own healthcare destiny through radical help you've is committed to the task of transforming healthcare by facilitating health literacy and self advocacy as well as or Djing a relationship between meaningful to face conversations with cutting edge technology, so you know the teams of access and making health care equality. Equality is something that continues to come up. We touch on topics like social determinants of health and I think we're GONNA be at a cross section of a lot of these hot topics today with the release, and so with that I want to give her a warm welcome, so glad you're here. Thank you so much for having me it really the pleasure so. What did I leave out of your intro that you wanNA share with the listeners I think the important pieces that we could add to. That is that I'm. reported circle train so I use indigenous practice to convene and hold workshops and sessions, but really go back into practices that have been used over and over again, and we get to incorporate that into our work and I recently in two thousand eighteen with nominated as a roddenberry fellow for the work that we're doing with radical health. Congratulations on that that's pretty pretty impressive. And you know you gotta do things differently to get results, and so you know your story obviously highlights why you're so passionate about what you do, but what is it that got you into healthcare to begin with? The story is anyone ever grown up with very little. The number one objective and for me was I wanted to get out of the hood I wanted to make a lot of money I wanted a fancy apartment. All the things that we see on television and that was that was my number one goal and the way to do that. was I was GonNa Dancer, and so I'm going to help people but I also make sure that I had some. Truth behind that was that didn't really really work out for me, and that wasn't really the path that I was going to go on, but I still ended up in healthcare and ended up looking at help from different perspectives and getting to do that getting kind of the inner belly of the beast in my work with Pharma through my work in health, tack and so I. Guess I guess ultimately trying to what led me here today. That's awesome. You know what that grit that very strong desire to get out of the hood and just get a better life I mean. Hey, I grew up with not much either elise. Definitely been a motivating force in my life and everything that I do so I totally appreciate that. So now that you've been the business for quite some time, and and doing your own thing now. What's that hot topic that you want us to focus on today for leaders listening? The important thing and I I am shouting from the rooftops at every opportunity. That I get. We talk a lot about innovation. We're talking a lot about transforming how using all the new things but what we're really missing is like equity and equity in help and to day and America folks that are the most disproportionately affected are black and Brown people. People with disabilities are better in and. Help like right. Yeah! Health, as as we know, it is not equal, and we have people who are dying disproportionate rate where I live in the South Bronx our community number. I'm average. Five years sooner than our neighbors were less than a mile away on the upper east side, and this is happening across the country. Where are the code and the structures where we live are really impacting our ability, our our life, and how we live and I think that really needs to be at the top of all of these conversations in top of health. It's not enough. Enough to provide you know quality care or provide an invasion be talking about who is not being acknowledging who are the most impacted by what we're doing our work and what we're creating
